Lliurex 16, a Spanish alternative to use Raspberry Pi in our schools

Lliurex desk 16

A few days ago we were talking about PiNet project, a project aimed at bringing Raspberry Pi to schools in the form of minipcs or thin clients for educational classrooms. However, there are other projects and recently a project of Spanish origin has been released that uses Raspberry Pi and other types of equipment to function in an educational network.

The distribution is called lyurex 16, a distribution that has been working on Raspberry Pi for years and that can currently use the raspberry board as a thin client to work in an educational classroom.

Lliurex 16 can use Rasbperry Pi as a thin client, just like the PiNet project

Unfortunately, Lliurex 16 cannot be used independently on a Raspberry Pi board, but we can use it as the main system of an educational network. In this regard, Lliurex 16 is a fairly complete distribution that can play many educational programs on Raspberry Pi. It has two quite interesting software managers. One of them is in the System Administrator user, a software manager that allows you to install any program on any computer, scripts included. The second software manager is in the user's environment, this app store looks like the Google Play Store, thus facilitating the installation of software for any novice user. We can get Lliurex 16 through the official page of the project.

Unfortunately, Lliurex 16 does not work independently on the Raspberry Pi, something that other operating systems do but will run any application through the main server. Lliurex 16 is focused on the educational world, that is, it does not compete with Raspbian or Ubuntu but it does with projects like PiNet. In any case, we can say that Raspberry Pi we can now use it in our schools without having to make a large outlay.
